Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Hammer Toe Syndrome
A condition characterized by a series of interrelated digital symptoms and joint changes of the lesser digits and METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINTS of the FOOT. The syndrome can include some or all of the following conditions: hammer toe, claw toe, mallet toe, overlapping fifth toe, curly toe, EXOSTOSIS; HYPEROSTOSIS; interdigital heloma, or contracted toe.
A condition characterized by the recurrence of HEMOGLOBINURIA caused by intravascular HEMOLYSIS. In cases occurring upon cold exposure (paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria), usually after infections, there is a circulating antibody which is also a cold hemolysin. In cases occurring during or after sleep (paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria), the clonal hematopoietic stem cells exhibit a global deficiency of cell membrane proteins.
Amniotic Band Syndrome
A disorder present in the newborn infant in which constriction rings or bands, causing soft tissue depressions, encircle digits, extremities, or limbs and sometimes the neck, thorax, or abdomen. They may be associated with intrauterine amputations.
A hereditary disease caused by autosomal dominant mutations involving CHROMOSOME 19. It is characterized by the presence of INTESTINAL POLYPS, consistently in the JEJUNUM, and mucocutaneous pigmentation with MELANIN spots of the lips, buccal MUCOSA, and digits.
Nocturnal Paroxysmal Dystonia
A parasomnia characterized by paroxysmal episodes of choreoathetotic, ballistic, dystonic movements, and semipurposeful activity. The episodes occur during non-rapid eye movement sleep and typically recur several times per night. (Neurology 1992 Jul;42(7 Suppl 6):61-67; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p391)
The identities of the digits of the avian forelimb are disputed. Whereas paleontological findings support the position that the digits correspond to digits one, two, and three, embryological evidence...
Epilepsy and paroxysmal dyskinesia are two episodic cerebral disorders that can share a common genetic basis. Rare families with infantile seizures and paroxysmal dyskinesia [predominantly paroxysmal...
Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the etiological characteristics of patients diagnosed with subchorionic hematoma. Methods: A case-controlled study was performed to compare characte...
BACKGROUND: HELLP syndrome is associated with high morbidity and mortality which is attributed most commonly to intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) and/or stroke. The presence of other complications further...
Background: It has been reported that approximately one-third of patients undergoing cardiovascular surgery experience paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) during the postoperative period. There is, ho...
This study is designed to better understand the molecular biology of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) and to determine if prion protein (PrP) functions in long term hematopoietic...
The purpose of this study is to accurately investigate the efficacy of dronedarone in maintaining sinus rhythm and decreasing AFB in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation as compare...
Patients requiring long term anticoagulation often undergo transition of their warfarin to heparin in anticipation of invasive surgical procedures such as pacemaker or ICD implantation. Th...
The propose of this study is to compare two methods of physical treatment for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, by evaluating treatment effects on postural stability. The trail design...
This is a randomized controlled study of the Bard High Density Mesh Ablation System for treatment of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. This study will determine if the HD Mesh Ablation Syst...
